New Year New Beginning

Once again, time has a way of getting away from all of us and before we know it; it's a whole new year. It's been drilled into our heads that a new year is meant as a chance to make changes and begin anew. I've tried to break away from that train of thought and instead choose to use my birthday as my new year to make changes and to work towards improvements in my life. This past birthday was wonderful; it was relaxing and mostly stress free. Spending time with friends is always uplifting and full of laughter. Shortly after my birthday I was finally given the chance that I have been working hard on for a long time in order to further my career, make a name for myself and get my life financially back on track. There is so much to learn in my new venture, but I am confident that I am a quick learner and in time after many repetitions I will have every thing down pat.

Christmas this year was good too. I am such a stickler on traditions that when I'm not able to have that I am disappointed easily. My memories are always surrounded by family more than by location - so it doesn't matter where I celebrate holidays as long as it is with family. And I have not been able to be around family much since I moved out here to Vegas, so many holidays are filled with tears, pity and disappointment. I am grateful for all my friends here that have always gone the extra mile to do their best to make my holidays happy and cheerful, but sometimes watching someone else's family - from the outside in; no matter how involved they tried to make me feel - only reminds me of what I don't have. However; this Christmas was tear free *maybe I should have used Johnson's baby shampoo earlier* and it felt so good to simply hang out with friends and their families and children and cherish our time together.
